Good old-fashioned hospitality, comfortable rooms and great breakfast. Robin was the perfect host and nothing was too much trouble for him. We will certainly return to The Old Priory when next in this area

We stayed three nights so the average price for our room was excellent! Our room was very clean, plenty of hot water, lots of white fluffy towels and they even had tumblers and wine glasses at the ready!! Breakfast was very good, nothing was too much trouble for our host! Call me old fashioned, but our beds were turned back at night along with the shutters and curtains being drawn whilst we were out - such a lovely gesture!! The only downside, if it was a downside, is we couldn't always get wi-fi or phone reception in our room. This is a perfect location to stay for the Showground or for using as a base and travelling around. Kelso is very much an up and coming market town with lots of very nice individual shops.

We stayed here for one night for my husband's birthday at the beginning of June. The whole place was lovely and homely, and our host was very friendly. The room was very well appointed, and our breakfast was delicious. Would definitely recommend it.

My husband and I stayed 3 nights in Kelso at the Old Priory in order to explore the Scottish Borders. We could not have picked a better B&B. Robin is VERY knowledgable of the area, with both the historical and quirky bits; areal pleasure to have a conversation with him. The home is beautifully maintained with a nice melding of the original and newer parts (a lovely conservatory). The bed and pillows were great. A very nice touch to have the bed turned down and the shutters closed in the evening. I think this speaks to the passion Robin holds towards ensuring his house guest are treated well and made to feel special. You could spend hours looking at all the antiques and aspects of the house.
The breakfast was GREAT. Orders are placed at night and then freshly cooked for you. We tried the smoked haddock, salmon and scrambled eggs, the sausages .....all cooked to perfection and really tasty. Lots of other choices too that we saw being gobbled up with the same enthusiasm:)
The Old Priory is a special place and we are glad we chose it and would recommend to others without hesitation.

Room Tip: We stayed in the king room on the front of the house. Peaked in other rooms when possible and all se...

My husband and I stayed overnight in this delightful place on 15 May. Great care has gone into creating an environment that is simultaneously classy and warm through choice of furniture and soft furnishings. Our ground floor room was large, clean and comfortable with shutters to shut out street noise and early morning light. We had a small dressing alcove between the bedroom and the large bathroom (which also had a bath and fluffy white towels. Guests have access to a large comfortable lounge room complete with a library of DVDs and books and a marvellous chess set, which is on the first floor; a comfortable conservatory on the ground floor; and a lovely garden during the day. There is secure off-street parking and free wifi access.
Breakfast offered a selection of quality cereals and fruit in addition to a menu of cooked dishes. Unfortunately, neither of us were hungry enough to avail ourselves of a cooked meal but we did enjoy our muesli and fruit in the country style dining room.
Robin and Susan and their daughters are consummate hosts, very friendly. They aim to treat guests as guests of the family and this is how we felt. In addition they have 3 rescue greyhounds which says something about their soft hearts and certainly won ours!
Restaurants are within walking distance and Kelso is a great base for touring the Border counties and Northumberland. We hope to return for a longer stay in about three years' time. Thank you Robin and Susan for providing such a lovely home from home and for keeping your tariff within the reach of most travellers.

Our first trip to the UK and our first b+b could not have been a better experience. We arrived unexpectedly early but our gracious host made us immediately welcome and comfortable. We had the family suite which was spacious and elegant with a very comfortable bed and an extra room with twin beds. Lots of supplies for a hot drink and huge windows to sit by and enjoy the garden view. The bathroom was a bit small but clean and adequate for our needs. We enjoyed the "oldness" of the building along with the comfort and tastefulness of the decor. Breakfasts were delicious and generous with lots of variety on the menu. We really appreciated the abundance of information about the area and the restaurants and our host was most helpful. Kelso is a beautiful place to walk around in and the Old Priory is perfectly located close to the river walk as well as the restaurants.
